Haven Youth and Family Services helps youth and their families in crisis by offering specialized programs focused on prevention, intervention and private counseling. Haven collaborates with schools and other community agencies to counsel youth and to identify and prevent crises.
Haven Youth and Family Services was founded in 1976 and began with an outreach program for youth. Soon thereafter, we began a 24-hour crisis intervention and emergency housing program for adolescents and their families. Since then, the agency has continued to grow and develop by offering programs focused on prevention. Some of these programs include psycho-educational workshops, youth boards, service-learning opportunities, around the clock crisis intervention, outreach and ongoing counseling.

Haven offers area youth an opportunity to become more involved.
Youth Board members have a chance to develop their leadership skills and help Haven grow as an agency. The Youth Board meets at Haven once a week (typically on Tuesdays from 5:30–6:30pm). Their goal is to help fundraise and raise awareness of mental health issues in the community.
Looking for a way to meet others and make a difference?
The Young Adult Board of Haven Youth and Family Services is comprised of young professional, community minded adults from 21-35 years old who have a strong desire to serve youth and adolescents and promote healthy lifestyles. The purpose of the Young Adult Board is to create public awareness of Haven's mission, foster a spirit of volunteerism, learn skills necessary to serve in voluntary leadership roles with non-profit organizations and participate in occasional fundraising events that enable Haven to continue their work within the North Shore community.
The Young Adult Board will meet approximately four times a year and members will have an opportunity to meet peers, network with one another and socialize with others in the Chicago area. These get-togethers will be informal and mostly held in the city at local eateries, etc. Businesses and corporations are often pleased when their employees show an interest in their community!
